Adjustable Back System,
Bought for my daughter for her next trekking trip to Asia. Good selection of storage spaces for easy access and looks to be very well made. A little time to sort the adjustments for a perfect fit, but once sorted then a very comfy pack

This is a great rucksack, perfect for use on D of E trips, really good supportive and adjustable structure and comfy hip straps. The colour is fab!

I'll be honest, I chose this one because it's purple! Very scientific, I know... However it turned out to be absolutely perfect for my needs. I spent a week away on a boat and it held just the right amount of stuff without being too bulky and it was very comfortable to carry! Would recommend!
